Memorial Day is just around the corner, and I can’t quite believe May is all but passed us by. However, with the unofficial start to summer comes the need for clothing that is light, comfortable, yet still chic and fabulous. As always, choosing neutrals is never a bad idea – white, khaki, dark denim jeans or black, all can easily be paired with a beautiful print. Peruse this week’s selection and be sure to choose your favorite as it will be shopped next week.

As Nordstrom’s half-yearly sale is on, I was eager to stop by and shop this week’s Outfit of the Week, and what I found didn’t disappoint, a white linen blazer from Michael Kors, denim jeans for less than $100 and Charles David pumps at a remarkable price. Many readers commented on the effortless, yet perfectly styled accessory of the lariat necklace, and I couldn’t agree more. Such a dramatic signature piece due to its unexpectedness, yet simple at the same time. Lesson to be learned, choosing essential capsule items and adding one statement piece can have a tremendous impact.

  1. I tried to be practical…but I am in a weekend frame of mind….so I am choosing the blue and white printed maxi dress. I am not wild about the cut outs-but I love the print.

  2. They are all very inspiring now that the warmer weather has arrived. I find myself drawn to 3 and 1. The dress in photo 9 with the yellow Hermes bag is also beautiful.

  3. 1, 4 and 6 but if I can only vote for one then 1 as it could go to many jobs and also into weekend depending on the shoes worn.
